BETA PHOTO: Be Sharp. Follow bolts up right side of arete.

Description 

This is a great tech-arete. Originally there was one route that crossed the arete, Ginsu Arete. It was recently rebolted with routes on both sides of the arete. Be Sharp is the right, and harder, side. Moderate climbing leads up to the bolts (a cam or two can protect the start). Climb the arete to a friction dependent crux move with a foot dyno! It is great during cooler temps, frustrating when warm. The left side of arete is Look Sharp.

Location 

This is on the obvious arete at the right side of the Bay of Pigs sector, just right of a wide/thin corner.

Protection 

A handful of draws, chain anchor.
